Fox received a Ph.D. in Theoretical Physics from Cambridge University where he was Senior Wrangler. He is now a distinguished professor of Engineering, Computing, and Physics at Indiana University. He previously held positions at Caltech, Syracuse University, and Florida State University after being a postdoc at the Institute for Advanced Study at Princeton, Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory, and Peterhouse College Cambridge. He has supervised the Ph.D. of 73 students with a hindex of 78 and over 36000 citations. He is a Fellow of APS (Physics) and ACM (Computing) and works on the interdisciplinary interface between computing and applications.
Fox leads the nanoBIO node https://nanohub.org/groups/nanobio:
The Engineered nanoBIO node develops computational tools that enable researchers to engineer nanoparticles (NPs) based on the knowledge of how NPs interface with biological matter at the bioenvironment, cell, and tissue levels. The tools are community-informed, user-tested, and experimentally validated. They are deployed and continuously refined on nanoHUB to address research and education needs of the nanoBIO community.
